earn around you is whisper about the bad news and that bad news is hillary clinton. 1,000 registered voters in florida found hillary crushing opponents in that pivotal state. in head oh-to-head matchups voters picked clinton 52% over 41%. it's a bit early for popping the champagne but this cannot be good news for republicans who must cling to florida if they have any hope of winning in 2016. joining me now in austin, texas wayne slater, senior political writer in the dallas news and a favorite in "the war room." >> great to be with you again. >> michael: wayne, i'm not one to count my chickens so far in advance but this makes the hill look pretty steep for republicans in florida. what is your take on this very early early poll. >> not only is florida important. it's going to be important across the board any way. but the idea that hillary clinton would beat the two prominent republicans at this point in that state is astan initialing. florida has been moving away from republicans the last couple of elections. it's a crucial state the winner has to win. this just tells you that hillar
clinton endorsed gay marriage. >> lbgt americans are our colleagues, our teachers our soldiers, our friends our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. >> michael: great stuff. totally great stuff. progress always great to watch, but to be fair it's not exactly risky that position puts her squarely among the majority. support for gay marriage has reached an all-time high according to a new poll that is out today. it is nearly double what it was in 2004. but at cpac the republican bases show how out of step it is on that issue. they attacked rod portman for backing gay marriage after his own son came out. >> just because something like that hits home, i don't know why you change your beliefs. i mean that's what bothers me. his belief is very easily changed just because his son is gay. i don't get that. >> reporter: he came out in favor of same-sex marriage. what is your reaction to that? >> horrible. that's his fault. and he gets no sympathy from me. >> quit being so selfish as to think only abou
with what you're talking about? >> oh absolutely. 's terrific lawyer. we worked together in the clinton administration. he really understands these issues. i think that you're going to see a very forceful advocate, and someone who is very knowledgeable and can really help the administration navigate in the coming months the negotiations on this issue of immigration reform. >> michael: and do you think then that we will see comprehensive immigration reform this year? >> you know, i have been working on this issue for over ten years, even when i was in the white house, you know, 13, 14 years ago. so i am cautiously optimistic, but the real--i actually saw what i guess boehner said something today about the secret committee in the house that is also very close to negotiating something, the bipartisan group. that is the first sign of that i've seen. it will be the house republicans who are worried about tea party challenges, challenges from the right. they will be the obstacle. if there can be movement in the house, then yes i'm cautiously optimistic. >> michael: but there we go again. if t
dianne feinstein, but also lindsey graham and others. like at hillary clinton, al franken, elizabeth warren the senate is different. you get to the senate and people hold their head down for like the first six years. they move they are a work horse not a show horse. ted cruz is not like that and i think it's only a matter of days before he steps on his you know what? >> michael: yeah, he went over to mary landrieu's desk here 4:00 am -- after he tied china and the un and abortion together and reprimanded him, and then she walked away and supposedly he was just sort of chuckling as she walked away. >> the senate for better or worse, i guess we still have to call at it gentle person's club if you will. unlike the house they really treat themselves with respect and that counts for a lot. that's why cruz's attitude flagrantly just violating all of the rules of decor um and respect for other members has turned people off on both sides of the aisle -- the worst of the tea party. the worst of the tea party. >> michael: it's incredible and maybe the state he comes from as h
